In ancient Crete, according to myth, Amalthea was the nurse of Zeus during the years he was growing up hidden from his father Cronus in a cave. The goat Amalthea suckled the infant Zeus and, together with the mountain-nymph Melissa, aided in the eventful birth and upbringing of the greatest of the Twelve Gods of Olympus, so that he would grow up to claim and attain his authority as ruler of the cosmos. When Cronus became aware of Melissa’s role in preventing his murderous design, he changed her into an earthworm. Zeus then, took pitty on her and transformed her into a beautiful bee.
